Outfit: Stroll Into The 1930s


This dress is a bit intimidating.
If you've read this blog for more than a day you've probably noticed my penchant (obsession?) with skater dresses, or dresses that are relatively fitted on top with a full flared skirt. Even when I wear separates I still try to stick to this silhouette, so wearing a fitted dress like this a quite a departure for me. It's a shape I don't think I'll ever fill completely comfortable in because it's not really designed with my body type in mind. But it's also such a lovely, intriguing dress straight out of the 1930s so how could I resist? And comfort aside, I did feel quite good strolling around in this dress. It's a bit of a head-turner, a feature no doubt exacerbated by retro styling with more reproduction pieces and real vintage accessories, but personally I can't see it styled any other way.

I beg to differ: this dress looks absolutely stunning on someone with your figure. It enhances your body in all the right ways, giving you a certain kind of allure that is so far from what I am used to see in you, which can be somewhat innocent like and "childish" - not in the sense that you dress like a child but that you favour clothes and styling that although lady like are never sensual, are more demure and girly than womanish, adult. I don't know if I'm putting this the right way! I feel that in this dress you look, well, not sexy but seductive, it makes you look very womanly, very seductive but in a very elegant and classy way. Ireally do like this type of more fitted dress on you.

This dress looks wonderful on you! And you styled it stunningly! The gloves are SO vintage, the purse is darling and sweet, the shoes go perfectly, and the hat is just the cherry on top especially with fall right around the corner!

This dress is absolutely divine and, while it may not be your usual style, it is perfect fit and looks beautiful. It goes brilliantly with your gorgeous shoes, but somehow your hair also makes the whole thing work so well. Truly gorgeous! Kx
